CHICO, Calif. - Despite COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 Celebration Market was still able to take place in Chico this weekend.

One vendor who is a Camp Fire survivor told Action News Now she quit her job at the beginning of the year to start her business.

Rebecca Lowers says since COVID-19 this is the first event she has even been able to go through so it means a lot.

"I am really happy this came together, it is a huge bunch of people here, and it has really been a success," said Lowers.

Rebecca Lowers has a business 'Powers of Lowers' where she sells handcrafted items that are made out of re-purposed goods.

She says the event made Christmas possible for her family this year.

"We have done a lot of bartering with other vendors. So I have done all my Christmas shopping here. I have been holding it off. So we have done a lot of bartering we will trade and do stuff that way. What I have made here will allow me to provide a Christmas for my family," said Lowers.

The organizers who are also both Camp Fire survivors said the past two years have been hard, so this was essential for them.

"Our priority at the beginning was to be sure we were following all the regulations and several times a day we would check all over California to make sure we were doing the right thing," said Christina Seashore.

Christina Seashore and Samantha Zangrilli added they had a backup plan to make everything virtual if they had to.

"I am really glad we didn't have to do that because it is a lot of work. I am also really cherishing the time I get to spend with one of my best friends and all of my community members. I am really glad we can do it in person," said Samantha Zangrilli.
